On appearance, Turkey and Iran continue to have good ties. Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğluís visit to Tehran earlier this month seemed to confirm this also. The two countries will clearly try and maintain this appearance for practical reasons. But the fact is that they have divergent interests when it comes to regional developments.



For Turkey, the ďArab SpringĒ is the product of a demand for more democracy, prosperity and stability. For Iran, however, the streets are in revolutionary fervor and an Islamic takeover is imminent in the countries involved.
